Speaking about the illegal minning, Reggie Rockstone stated that there needs to be some sacrifices due to the extent at which the activities have destroyed the water bodies.
“Looking at what’s happening to the environment so some sacrifices have to be made. I feel for the people whose livelihood depend on it. It is something rather embarrassing”, he lamented.
“I don’t have all the answers but I think there is something really wrong. First of all we need to raise the level of patriotism, we need t love our country more to understand that what is going on is not the best”.
